Even for the most skilled dressers, assembling a killer outfit sometimes requires a little more inspiration than the average online shopping experience provides.

Never prone to bold statement with their style choices, Simon & Garfunkel outfit themselves with clean-cut, classic looks. So follow their lead by heading over to your father or grandfather's closet to pick out your new favorites: windbreaker, black turtleneck, wool trousers, short chinos, and worn-in boots.
